    openssl req: don't try to report bits
    With the introduction of -pkeyopt, the number of bits may change
    without |newkey| being updated.  Unfortunately, there is no API to
    retrieve the information from a EVP_PKEY_CTX either, so chances are
    that we report incorrect information.  For the moment, it's better not
    to try to report the number of bits at all.
    Fixes #7086
